For more than two decades, Bud & Alley’s, winner of Florida Trend magazine's 2010 Golden Spoon Award, has sated appetites with steak and seafood fare and filled eyes with panoramic views of the Gulf of Mexico. After taking a seat in the relaxed yet elegant dining room, guests peruse the dinner menu's tempting entrees, such as steamed Prince Edward Island mussels flavored with thyme, feta, and a kick of chili flakes on grilled tuscan bread ($24). Southern-inspired sides enhance seafood plates, from a seared red snapper teamed up with sweet dill succotash and okra ($31) to seared diver scallops paired with creamy grits, fried capers, and an edible bust of William Faulkner ($32). A fillet steak served with portobello mushrooms and asparagus ($33) sets the stage for a classic romantic meal as couples clink and enemies hurl martinis or glasses of wine across the table ($8+). A visit to the rooftop bar infuses meals with a festive mood as revelers enjoy spectacular ocean views and sample a selection of top-shelf tequilas from Jose Cuervo, Patrón, and Sauza ($9).

Inside the newly constructed and modernly designed spa confines, the staff at Emerald Sanctuary Day Spa & Nail Salon administers a host of treatments conceived of with both relaxation and beautification in mind. To begin each service, a team member leads clients to one of the spa's four private treatment areas, inside which they can indulge in one of the salon's six massages, three facials, or a full lineup of waxing treatments. The team maintained a fidelity to its name by having the spa's walls painted in pleasing emerald-green hues that encourage peaceful, private tranquility and make the staff's leprechaun assistants nearly invisible to spa-goers.
